Did you read or see something jaw-dropping on a blog this year, or publish something you’re particularly proud of? Why not nominate it as one of BlogHer’s 2014 Voices or Photos of the Year? BlogHer recognizes up to 100 bloggers, and will select twelve to read their work aloud during the BlogHer annual conference-slash-10th anniversary celebration.
Who: Any blogger you love — or yourself. For Photos of the Year, you can nominate any images published publicly on a social network, like Instagram. You’re also free (and encouraged) to nominate yourself. It’s not just for women, either: any blogger can be nominated, regardless of sex.
When: Nominations are open until February 28th.
What: Blog posts and photos should fall into one of the following categories:
For Voices of the Year: Op-Ed, Humor, Heart, or Exploration.
For Photos of the Year: Slice of Life, Faces/Friends/Family, Nature, and (or course) Selfies.
Where: Visit BlogHer to submit a nomination or to vote for the People’s Choice award. Honorees are selected by BlogHer’s august committee — scroll down this page to see who they are — but one post in each category will be voted People’s Choice by all of you.
Note that you must be logged in to BlogHer to submit a nominations. You can log in with your WordPress.com account if you’re not currently a member of BlogHer. There’s also no need to submit multiple nominations for the same blog (or to encourage all your readers to nominate you) — each entry will be reviewed by two members of the committee and will get the same consideration, no matter how many submissions it had.
What are you waiting for? Nominate someone today. We read your incredible writing challenge entries and see your stunning photo challenge submissions — we love to see them get the increased recognition they deserve.
